The focus on the transnational in feminist research aims to decentre Western epistemologies, shaking the foundation of the sometimes taken-for-granted framework of Western—and specifically UK, US or European-focused—feminist research in the English language; it aims to disrupt the embedded hegemonies of nationalist ideologies, in all their heteropatriarchal connotations. The transnational as a qualifier for feminist research methods and methodologies specifically aims to continue the project of transnational feminism, understood as a feminist paradigm and plural field of feminist thought, research and practice that can manifest as scholarly, intellectual and activist projects. Transnational feminisms, as activism and scholarship, have largely been developed and influenced by the work of self-identified women-of-colour feminists located in the Global North and postcolonial scholars or ‘Third World feminists’ located both in the North and South. While situated knowledges and feminist methods and methodologies that engage with the process of knowledge production from a critical and intersectional perspective represent ongoing explorations in Feminist Review, the focus on feminist methodologies from/with a transnational angle has added, we believe, a special urgency to this themed issue.
